Firmware 4.05 for the n-gage.. is this true?

An online friend of mine told me he's got a 4.05 firmware.. i told him i only have 3.30. Is he just pulling my leg? I havent heard of new firmwares from nokia or in any website.

I've seen V4.03 more then two months ago.I guess v4.05 is the same firmware,just area specific.

Firmware upgrades are free if your game deck is under warranty- just take your game deck and proof-of-purchase to your nearest authorized Nokia repair center, Nokia Care Center or authorized Nokia service point. The latest version of N-Gage firmware varies from country to country, although most countries will have version 4.03 of N-Gage firmware available. Version 4.04 and version 4.05 of the N-Gage's firmware is still quite new, but should be available from most repair centers within 1-2 months (if it is not already)...

Oh yeah- firmware upgrades aren't generally announced as firmware upgrades are usually only carried out when a phone is repaired and on request... You can find out what firmware your Nokia phone is running by typing *#0000# on the "stand-by" screen.

Question

Sorry for being ignorant, but what difference does the firmware make? What issues would an upgrade address?

Usually it addressess problems/issues/bugs discovered in earlier versions. No new features/functionality, in general. If you have not encountered problems with whatever firmware version you happen to have, there is no need to upgrade just for the sake of upgrading.

Oh thanx N/A. My QD's only 1 week old so at the moment i haven't encountered any problems other than the slight lag after i press a button. Would this possibly be solved with an upgrade?
Just out of curiosity, the people who've posted here so far, are u guys using the N-gage or the QD? Coz my QD i just bought like last week and i've got v03.15, 27-04-2004. While u guys have already like version 4+...

Red face Phew...

OH i see... haha... all of you got me worried for a moment there... Coz i thought the QDs in your countries already have so new software... But will firmware upgrades necessarily increase the speed of hardware? Coz although i'm not complaining, i realize my QD takes some time to respond when i press menu, contacts or even dial a number... :/

Generally-speaking, a firmware upgrade will not increase the speed of the phone whilst navigating through menus, etc...

Not exactly true.A lot of manufacturers when working on a tight deadline are releasing their phones half baked so they optimize the OS and fix bugs trough a firmware updates.V 4.39 was a revolution for my 7650.Log managment has visable improvements as did the device in general.
